Quick question. Do MAP holders have to pre book for Scarefest like with Fright Nights?

I don't think so, as reaching capacity isn't as much of an issue for Towers as it is for Thorpe. I guess those with VIP MAPs could still pre book their visit like they can do on any other day though.

Maybe this year because there are three mazes the queues will be more evenly spread out.

It's also difficult for them to predict how long it will take to complete all three mazes as two of them are new and one has been re-routed.

That information probably won't be made public until the first day of Scarefest or the staff preview night (providing they hold one this year)

Ok my Scarefest line up
Sunday 18th Terror of the Towers Extreme
Monday 19th Terror of the Towers Go Alone
Standard 3 mazes
and finishing with Haunting of Molly Crowe Extreme

Cannot wait however im still flummoxed "wonderful word right there) on to how the location of Molly Crowe would play if in the towers.
This how im kinda expecting SubSpecies to go, Queue around the shipping containers possibly in a couple , learn about the endgames head through more containers and head up steps across bridge into towers, Use TOTTs old route exiting near X-Sector
TOTT in the Sanc Location again exiting near X-Sector
Now for Molly Crow... Possibly entering where TOTT has been for the past few years, maybe shared room in the banqueting hall and ending and utilizing the chapel exiting ...hmm not sure lol

it just doesnt make sense

but in celebration of what I hope plans to be an amazing Scarefest..here are 2 new wallpapers for this year

I must say the scare zones are what are interesting me, with rumours they will be whole areas, it would be amazing!

For those still skeptical about Molly Crowes location, AT have just confirmed on a visitors FB post that all 3 mazes are in the tower ruins.

Having posted in too long! but have been active reading.


can't wait for this year probably the most excited I have been for the event yet

going 20th- 21st staying overnight at one of the hotels. Will see which is cheapest on Saturday when I book.

Been looking and usually splash landings is the cheapest but enchanted village has also been cheaper. so we will see.

It may seem obvious in the same direction.

Who do towers use for there speakers nowadays (the ones in CBeebies land and above the towers for Scarefest this year)?

[Old post]

A member of the TowersStreet forum has been and has an update on the shipping containers which can be seen here! More entrances / exits being cut into the shipping containers.

[Addition: 19.09.15]

So a guy asked about fast track for the mazes, I posted regarding the RIP tour and got this response from AT:

This is a back of house tour, and involves access to Mazes via that method. There is no Fastrack available for the Mazes, thank you.

Credit to Tom.B on TowersStreet for finding this image taken by Charlotte Charteris.

Looks like a crawl space in the shipping containers.
